How to Fetch Reports with Specific Category Names in Bold Reports


Bold Reports provides REST APIs that allow programmatic access and management of various reporting resources. These APIs enable developers to automate tasks and integrate report functionalities within applications.

To efficiently retrieve reports from the Bold Reports API, you can use Postman, a popular API client. This guide outlines the steps to retrieve report details based on a specific category name.

Steps to Retrieve Reports

  1. Open the Postman application and create a new GET HTTP request.

  2. Before making the request, you must have an access token. Follow the instructions to generate an access token for the Bold Reports Server using the API.

  3. In the Authorization tab of Postman, select the Bearer Token type and paste the generated access token into the token field.


  4. The request URL should follow this format, where you need to replace placeholders with actual values:

    {BoldReportsUrl}/reporting/api/site/<site_identifier>/v4.0/items?ItemType=Report&&serverPath=/{Category Name}

Note: Replace {BoldReportsUrl} with the base URL of your Bold Reports server, <site_identifier> with your actual site identifier, and {Category Name} with the actual name of the category.

  1. Click the Send button in Postman to execute the request. The response will contain the report details in JSON format.


By following these steps, you can easily retrieve reports from the Bold Reports API using the category name.
